>I believe that the Archive can do nothing to remove the "blip.TV" videos

Just curious...why the privileged status for bliptv? Do they have some sort of arrangement with IA that allows them to post copyrighted movies? Are their uploads here legally or not? My curiosity is based on the fact that their uploads are mostly things I would love to watch. I mean, c'mon...The Return of the Vampire: Lugosi as Dracula (with a different name), a female van Helsing, and a werewolf Renfield!

Some of the Phantasmagoria Theater stuff have been here for nearly two years, apparently under copyright, yet IA can do nothing to remove them? Why?

Thanks in advance...

I think that the IA's Blip.TV section is just a mirror for the old Blip.TV site. I think the uploads in that section can only be maintained by Blip.TV (a few admins have said that they don't have privs to remove blip.tv stuff.)

The current Blip.TV site doesn't allow access to any of this stuff but does let it stay in the archive.

Interesting, a truly orphaned corner of the archives. Thanks for satisfying my curiosity.

But how come some of this stuff is relatively new? I just looked and there's some stuff that's only been here a few hours, though it's not the same stuff as the files listed at the beginning of this thread. So more copyrighted stuff could come in through there any time.

Also, I notice that a few of the uploads mentioned at the start of this thread have been removed, so some one (in or out of the archive, who knows?) does have a set of administrative keys...there is also what appears to be some very disturbing and illegal content in that section, but I'm not about to click on the links to find out for sure.

I don't know if this makes any difference, but I checked out most of these links and found the resolution to be so poor that the uploader(s) aren't really doing anyone any favors here. I would advise any potential downloaders interested in these films to open up your wallets and cut loose of a couple of bucks and buy legit dvds from whoever puts these films out to get better copies. Watching these crappy files is like like watching a movie through a shower door. I like getting free movies as much as the next guy, but this stuff is copyright as well as being just crap.

It's fitting that this stuff which shouldn't be here anyway is of too poor quality to actually watch.
